    ‘Placebos’ and the Logic of Placebo Comparison.Andrew Turner - 2012 - Biology and Philosophy 27 (3):419-432.
    Robin Nunn has argued that we should stop using the terms ‘placebo’ and ‘placebo effect’. I argue in support of Nunn’s position by considering the logic of why we perform placebo comparisons. Like all comparisons, placebo comparison is just a case of comparing one thing with another, but it is a mistake, I argue, to think of placebo comparison as a case where something is compared to ‘a placebo’. Rather, placebo comparison should be understood as a situation which sets-up the (...)

    The ECOUTER Methodology for Stakeholder Engagement in Translational Research.Madeleine J. Murtagh, Joel T. Minion, Andrew Turner, Rebecca C. Wilson, Mwenza Blell, Cynthia Ochieng, Barnaby Murtagh, Stephanie Roberts, Oliver W. Butters & Paul R. Burton - 2017 - BMC Medical Ethics 18 (1):24.
    Because no single person or group holds knowledge about all aspects of research, mechanisms are needed to support knowledge exchange and engagement. Expertise in the research setting necessarily includes scientific and methodological expertise, but also expertise gained through the experience of participating in research and/or being a recipient of research outcomes. Engagement is, by its nature, reciprocal and relational: the process of engaging research participants, patients, citizens and others brings them closer to the research but also brings the research closer (...)

    What Are the Benefits of a New Placebo Language?Andrew Turner - 2018 - Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 61 (3):401-411.
    Acommon theme in placebo studies is that the terms placebo and "placebo effects" are confusing, misleading, and sloppy, and that there are no agreed definitions. Indeed, many authors treat the conceptual difficulties raised by placebos as a call to action and propose new definitions and reconceptualizations, or even propose abandoning the term altogether. The promise of these approaches is that a new language and new metaphors for thinking about placebo phenomena may deliver clinical, ethical, and methodological advances. However, the nature (...)

    Problematic Placebos in Physical Therapy Trials.Matthew Maddocks, Roger Kerry, Andrew Turner & Jeremy Howick - 2016 - Journal of Evaluation in Clinical Practice 22 (4):598-602.
    The function of a placebo control in a randomised trial is to permit blinding and reduce risk of bias. Adopting Grűnbaum’s definitional scheme of a placebo, all treatments must be viewed as packages consisting of characteristic and incidental features. An adequate placebo for an experimental treatment contains none of the characteristic features, all of the incidental features, and nothing more. For drug treatments, characteristic features can be readily identified, isolated, and separated. By contrast, physical therapy treatments often involve features such (...)

    Are Disorders Sufficient for Reduced Responsibility?Andrew J. Turner - 2010 - Neuroethics 3 (2):151-160.
    Reimer ( Neuroethics 2008 ) believes that how we use language to characterize psychopathy may affect our judgments of moral responsibility. If we say a psychopath has a disorder we may reduce their responsibility for moral failure. If we say a psychopath is merely different, we may not reduce their responsibility. Vincent ( Neuroethics 2008 ) argues that if this were the case, a diagnosis of disorder would be both necessary and sufficient to reduce the responsibility of some agent for (...)

    The Rise and Fall of the "Personal Equation" in American and British Medicine, 1855–1952.Rory Brinkmann, Andrew Turner & Scott H. Podolsky - 2019 - Perspectives in Biology and Medicine 62 (1):41-71.
    Medicine today, as both art and science, embodies a split personality. The ensuing tension—between individualized consideration, experience, and judgment on the one hand, and standardization, objective evidence, and guidelines on the other—plays out in the simultaneous aspirations of the medical humanities and evidence-based medicine, and in a host of other telling terms and movements. This is not a new tension, however. We turn in this paper to the critical but complex history of the term “personal equation” as both reflective and (...)

    Evaluating the UK House of Commons Science and Technology Committee’s Position on the Implausible Effectiveness of Homeopathic Treatments.Andrew Turner - 2017 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 38 (4):335-352.
    In 2009, the UK House of Commons Science and Technology Committee conducted an ‘evidence check’ on homeopathy to evaluate evidence for its effectiveness. In common with the wider literature critical of homeopathy, the STC report seems to endorse many of the strong claims that are made about its implausibility. In contrast with the critical literature, however, the STC report explicitly does not place any weight on implausibility in its evaluation. I use the contrasting positions of the STC and the wider (...)

    Biobank Economics and the “Commercialization Problem”.Andrew Turner, Clara Dallaire-Fortier & Madeleine J. Murtagh - 2013 - Spontaneous Generations 7 (1):69-80.
    The economic aspects of biobanking are intertwined with the social and scientific aspects. We describe two problems that structure the discussion about the economics of biobanking and which illustrate this intertwining. First, there is a ‘sustainability problem’ about how to maintain biobanks in the long term. Second, and representing a partial response to the first problem, there is a ‘commercialisation problem’ about how to deal with the voluntary altruistic relationship between participants and biobanks, and the potential commercial relationships that a (...)

    Aristotle, Potential and Actual, Conflicts.Andrew J. Turner - unknown
    In The Metaphysics Book Theta, Chapter four, Aristotle claims that to state that “some X is possible but X will never be” is a mistake. In effect, he collapses the possible into the actual. This view conflicts with the existence of dispositions which I argue exist, as they are indispensable to science. In Theta Chapter three, Aristotle sets out a test of possibility whereby we assume that some entity exists and then see if an impossibility ensues. I apply this test (...)

    Some Future Contingents and Aristotle.Andrew J. Turner - unknown
    Aristotle argued that particular statements about the future were neither true nor false. Turner rejects this claim, arguing that implicit to such a theory is an untenable theory of time. Whilst developing a theory of time was not Aristotle’s intent, Turner believes his view does entail an ontology that is questionable at best. Once we have sorted out an acceptable theory of time, the only reasonable conclusions about all statements is that they are true or false. That we do not (...)
